This is done totally in Artrage.

I took a some free time because my heart was telling me I needed too.
That allowed me to develop and paint this one.

Hope you enjoy it
Earle

Better than Bob Ross, Earle. I particularly like the mountains and the middle-ground. Very subtle. I also like how the grasses/reeds stand in stark contrast to that subtlety.

Those mountains are simply awesome. The one white tree coming out of the rock on the left seems to distract the eye. I tend to be drawn right to it instead of enjoying the panoramic view.

RegnR8 thank you.
The dead tree, rock and grass was intended to be a focal point area. (Dead pine tend to be white/gray with time when it has lost its bark.). I wanted the viewers focus drawn forward in the picture. I painted everything else to support that. I didn't highlight the mountains to down play them some. I also fogged them with a little blue to move them back more. I didn't open up a panoramic view intentionally. A panoramic mountain view would let the eyes wander a different direction. I wanted to direct where one would view as they moved threw it. I tried to also downplay the two water reflections. I wanted all the elements to work together to build a whole view. I also didn't want to try to paint in too much detail to make it a photo like painting. I was trying for more simplicity.
I have viewed a number of old world gallery paintings that used that technique. They have a very white/ bright object in the foreground to the right or left. I could have made the snow on the mountains to the right heavier to balance the white across the painting. I wanted to avoid putting something in the center and building around it.

In my other painting I made the sky the focal point.
